    I have been working at Kansas City Royals part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great part-time jobs for a good pay rate. Friendly management. Great atmosphere. Great place to work on your people skills as most every job is customer service oriented.

    Cons

    You need to be available on their schedule, which are usually game days, 2 hours before game time, during the baseball season. So from April to October, evenings and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more input from employees, especially those that have been there for 3 or more years.

    I worked at Kansas City Royals full-time

    Pros

    Fun, exciting, work/life balance is excellent. Baseball 24/7. Get to help and work with great co workers and fans

    Cons

    If you adjust for a 40 hour week you make $8.75 per hour so awfully low wages. They also hold your commission for months. Very little to no chance of advancement regardless of performance. No training and your just a number. Basically their system is each season they take kids fresh out of college and pay them minimum wage. Once the season ends they bring in new kids. So they can continue paying minimum wages. The only way to stay on is if you are accepted into the fraternity/sorority. When they do have job openings it's more about how much they personally like you than your actual work performance. I would only recommend if this is your first job out of college and plan to move on to a better organization and just need experience. It would be better off being called a very low paying internship.

    Advice to Management

    No question that it is a very fun job. However, pay employees livable wages and see employees as people instead of just the bottom line. Be more honest and don't just promote who you personally like over who can perform the job the best.
